Following multiple accusations and recorded evidence of luggage theft in July of 2022, former Biden official Sam Brinton will serve no jail time for his crimes. The ruling came on Wednesday as a Las Vegas district court judge decided to suspend Brinton’s 180-day jail sentence and ruled he must pay the victims restitution for the value of goods stolen. Brinton is a 35-year-old MIT graduate who identifies as “genderfluid” and was employed as a senior official in Biden’s Department of Energy; he was responsible for overseeing nuclear and radioactive waste disposal.
BREITBART: ‘Openly Genderfluid’ Ex-Biden Official Sam Brinton Spared Jail Time in Las Vegas Luggage Theft
By Simon Kent; April 14, 2023
Former senior Department of Energy official Sam Brinton, who self-identifies as “openly genderfluid,” was caught on camera stealing luggage last year and has now been ordered to pay $3,670 in restitution to the victim.
Brinton was spared jail time after pleading no contest Wednesday to the theft.
Instead a 180-day suspended sentence was delivered for Brinton’s walking away with a woman’s suitcase from Las Vegas‘ Harry Reid International Airport in July 2022, according to court records obtained by Fox 5.
The MIT grad was fired soon after the incident was made public.
As part of the plea deal, Brinton was also charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
The 35-year-old was originally seen on surveillance footage wearing a white T-shirt with a large rainbow-colored atomic nuclear symbol design. Brinton was also caught wearing the same in an Instagram photo posted later that day, as Breitbart News reported.
The sentencing occurred in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In addition to the sentence Brinton, who had been responsible for nuclear fuel and radioactive waste, was instructed by a judge to avoid engaging in any further criminal activity, as per the court documents in Las Vegas.
Prior to his appointment with the Biden administration, Brinton openly opposed LGBT conversion therapy, describing it as “pretty much mental torture.”
